The "Era of Good Feeling" was a time in U.S. history, when there was less partisan bickering than normal. However, NO era in human history can be completely described as an era of good feeling. We human beings can hardly agree on anything. If we agree on political matters, there is probably other areas in which we disagree, often in a very strong manner.
Back to the matter at hand, even though at this point in history there was less partisan bickering than normal, does not mean that there was the complete absence of political differences or of rival political factions or parties.
Another example of this can be the 1930's, when President Franklin D. Roosevelt, a Democrat, had the support of a number of Republicans for many of his New Deal programs. In fact, in 1933-1935, he had an approval rating that often topped 80 percent! This figure included many Republicans. Even though there were some conservatives who disagreed with New Deal politics, they only made up a small portion of the Republican Party.Source(s): 20 years of interest in history.

The issue of slavery. When the Missouri Territory want to enter into the union as a slave state, there was great concern among northern congressman. They were concerned the south/slave states would have an advantage in the Congress. Therefore, congress came up with the Missouri Compromise, allowing Missouri to enter as a slave state and the northern portion or Massachusettes breakaway to form the free state of Maine.
